IF THERE’S NO TROPHY, WE BETTER HAVE FUN

If you are reading this, you’ve found where I keep my deepest. darkest secrets.

Totally kidding. But this is a place where I exercise a creative outlet.

I saw a meme over the last year that read: “Simmer down, Karen. There’s no award for best quarantine mom.” I chuckled. Then I stifled a cry a little. No, there’s no award.
